BBs in bars - Wee instructions.....

For all those type A Wee owners.....

1) Requires 4.5 mm titanium core platinum plated shot
2) Measure each bb on electronic scale - ensure all are within .001 grams of optimal weight of 3.453 grams per shot
3) Disassemble entire bike and clean prior to install. Don't forget to check the crankshaft for runout
4) after putting bike back together, wash
5) Remove bar weight from right end
6) Using cubic zirconium plated tweezers, insert precisely 2446 shot
7) Replace bar end
8) Make sure (via electron microscope) that exactly 1223 shot are on either side of exact centerline of handlebar.
9) Test ride and verify mileage difference post installation.

Just kiddin. You don't HAVE to check the crank for runout.

I think you are supposed to use zircon encrusted tweezers. Then tie the bar ends down with dental floss.

Ride that horse.

How many BB's are in your Avatar's Shirt?

I truly get sidetracked whenever you post something, I know there's text there somewhere, but I keep looking at that photo...
